Yemen's government on Sunday accepted a UN-proposed plan to end fighting that has killed thousands, but the rebels rejected it, insisting that any settlement must first tackle a unity administration.The proposed peace deal is broadly in line with the demands of Hadi's government.Under the new plan, a political dialogue between the factions would start 45 days after the rebels withdraw and hand over heavy weapons to a military committee to be formed by Hadi.It charged that the Yemeni government announcement of a draft settlement was "no more than media stunts" aimed at foiling talks.The rebels reiterated their long-standing demand that a peace deal must first forge an accord on a new consensual executive authority, including a new president and government.The government's announcement came just hours after the coalition said a Saudi army officer and six soldiers were killed in border clashes with Yemeni rebels on Saturday.The rebels angered the government last week by announcing the formation of a 10-member "supreme council" to run Yemen, which Mikhlafi branded a "new coup".
